I know you're out there. Well, I need some advice. I moved to Chicago in the early 90s and bought most of my gear from folks advertising in the Tradin' Times paper (unbelievable amounts of great stuff available then). Since the rise of the internet, the MI content of that publication has dwindled to almost meaningless levels. Other than Ebay, bassgear.com, etc., is there a central, Chicago oriented classifieds type site with oodles of gear that I'm just missing out on (not the Reader or Illinois Entertainer either)? I much prefer being able to get in the car and drive to a suburb and try out a piece before I buy. I also get the feeling there isn't really as much band activity as there once was, reflected in the lack of used gear availability. Also, other than chicagogigs.com, what are the other better sites for musician classifieds (bass player wanted, available, etc.)? I've got my fingers crossed (between sets, of course) that a wealth of info and opinions will follow. Thanks for checkin' in!
